Although we are a wealth management firm, we offer internships in all of our business units including marketing, human resources, accounting and finance, and information systems. Our interns have the chance to learn more about Hightower’s culture and businesses while developing practical skills necessary for future success and post-graduate opportunities. The 10-week summer program includes weekly conversations with C-level professionals related to career development, networking opportunities with Hightower with fellow interns and colleagues, and engaging workshops related post-graduation skills and money management. The program culminates with a final presentation given to Hightower executives and managers.
The summer internship program is a 10-week-long program (based in New York City or Chicago) aimed to provide opportunities to:
Learn directly from industry professionals by having weekly 1:1 conversations related to career development
Attend workshops related post-college career paths and personal development
Gain exposure to the financial services industry
Develop a comprehensive understanding of specific team and department initiatives and goal
As an intern, you will participate in development meeting, a variety of networking, mentoring and community events, all intended to reinforce the Core Values of the Program – Education, Innovation, Leadership, Collaboration and Service.
“As a Hightower intern, you gain valuable, hands-on experience. You’re not just doing busywork. I had the opportunity to
gain new skills and really explore my strengths and weaknesses, ask questions and take risks. It helped me develop my
confidence and gave me a way to apply classroom knowledge to real-life situations.”
"I was grateful that I had a mentor on my team who helped me throughout my internship. I felt like I could ask any questions, and she would always be willing to sit down with me and explain what I was supposed to do. Similarly, I really enjoyed my team and had such a positive experience with everyone I worked with. Likewise, I really enjoyed all of the intern events and getting to meet with company leaders in the different departments. It was super insightful to learn about everyone’s unique career path and what drew them to Hightower.”
“The most satisfying aspect of the internship was being able to contribute to projects that truly mattered to the firm.”
“The most satisfying part about my internship experience was actually getting to go into the office in NYC and meet my supervisor and other members of the Advisor Engagement team. Additionally, being able to work on different projects that were results-driven or would be directly used by advisor businesses.”
